My parrot's all feathers are falling and now his white feathers can be seen easily.I don't know what has happened to him.He was not like this before he was a green parrot and was very beautiful too and now.... this had happened I think a year ago.Please help me out my parents are telling me to sell him but he is very dear to me and I love him very much... please help me out urgently.I have never seen him plucking his feathers i don't know whether he plucks or not but I know that he sometimes scratches his body.

I suspect your bird is pulling out the feathers, but can't be sure. The reason your bird is doing this is the mystery to be solved.

There are many causes of feather damaging behavior. You should take the bird to an avian vet to make sure your bird doesn't have an internal infection or disease causing this.

Please read this Feather Damaging Behavior article written by our avian vet for more information on this situation.
